According to Spanish publication AS, Arsenal, as well as Liverpool, are interested in signing Villarreal winger Yeremy Pino.
The 19-year-old has come up through the ranks at Villarreal and last season, he scored six and assisted four goals in the Spanish league. He’s a very promising winger whose current deal expires in 2027 and he has a buyout clause of €80 million.
Villarreal are finding it really challenging to sign new players due to some financial tribulations and as per some rumours, Unai Emery is now ready to sell some players to be able to bring in fresh faces.
The winger has a massively bright future which is why two of the biggest Premier League clubs are interested in signing him but his absurd buyout clause will force the suitors to think twice.
Some claim an offer from an unknown club has already been made but this news hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Yeremy Pino's representatives have confirmed Arsenal and Liverpool's interest in the Villarreal winger, with some reports suggesting a bid could have been made already.

Will Arsenal or Liverpool be able to sign Pino?
Pino is definitely one for the future and both Arsenal and Liverpool are out in the market looking for a new wide player.
Liverpool have added Darwin Nunez to their forward line and while Klopp has made it clear that he is not going to make any panic buys but the 19-year-old is not a panic buy by any means.
Mikel Arteta, on the other hand, has very clearly admitted that he wants to sign some new players and a right winger is very much top of the agenda.
Earlier in the summer, Arsenal missed out on Raphinha and with Nicolas Pepe up for sale, someone like Yeremy Pino will be a very tempting target.
Even David Ornstein has also said that the Gunners are looking for a new winger in the coming weeks so there’s every chance they will seriously make a move for Pino.
Liverpool have already spent a fortune on Nunez so they won’t be eager to go into a transfer battle for the winger meaning Arsenal might be able to get this deal done easily if they are willing to pay the right price for him.
